Today

How about we put Alex back on news or get another male newsreader and get a new female entertainment reporter which is what she started as.

Or how about
Roz Kelly (Left), Karl Stefanovic, Sarah Abo, Alex Cullen (Right), Renee Bargh for E-news & Tim Davies.

Roz could be good, but I don’t see her giving up all her hosting roles for an early start at Breakfast. That and I don’t think they’ll make further changes by putting Alex back on news for the main program.

I think the two most likely options are Jayne Azzopardi moves to news to replace Brooke, with Sophie Walsh promoted to co-host for Weekend Today which would be very well deserved.

Either that or Izabella Staskowski takes over from Brooke on news.

I get it’s a one off (well 3 a year) but today’s show was way too Origin heavy. The rest of the country don’t care. Report it of course but in my opinion it was overload. I wouldn’t be surprised if Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide viewers switched over.

Why is the AFL guy in Melbourne talking about origin?

They always have one NRL rep and one AFL rep and they talk both codes in that segment.

I’m not sure which forum to post this next question I’m going to ask in.

I’m wondering if Channel 9 have any network affiliates or have close ties to networks in America. I remember years ago Channel 9 had either close ties or an affiliation agreement with abc and Good Morning America because i remember over a decade ago the Today show did a week of shows in NYC and they utilised the Good Morning America studios.

Channel 7 have close ties or affiliation with NBC

Channel 10 are affiliated with CBS

Nine has CNN

I thought this shot looked really good on air this morning.

Makes that part of the soft set area look quite big.
